Bar none, it’s the brightest scope in the world. Boasting 95% light transmission at 550nm, this is our top-of-the-line
riflescope. Our exclusive, hydrophobic Rainguard lens coating – which disperses condensation into microscopic specks,
allowing you to literally see around the moisture – ensures you won’t miss that trophy buck because you breathed on your
eyepiece or you couldn’t wipe the rain away in time. All optical lens surfaces are fully multi-coated for the absolute maximum
light transmission and the sharpest image. Fingertip, audible/resettable 1/4 M.O.A. adjustments make windage and elevation
tuning quick and easy. The ultra-strong one-piece tube is hammer-forged from an aluminum and titanium alloy for 30%
more strength than standard aluminum scopes – and to be sure it lasts, it is recoil-tested to 10,000 rounds of a .375 H&H
Magnum! Finally, our Elite  4200 scopes offer some of the largest magnification ranges in the industry for optimum
versatility in the most challenging hunting situations. In the world of big game pursuit, there are hunters – and there are
serious hunters. If you consider yourself the latter, the Elite 4200 is the scope that does justice to your commitment.

Rainguard: Bushnell’s permanent, patented, hydrophobic (water-repellant) lens coating prevents fogging by
causing condensation from rain, sleet, snow or even your own breath to bead up into much smaller droplets than
on standard coatings. Smaller droplets scatter less light which results in a clearer, brighter view. Now the hunter
won’t miss the shot of a lifetime because of rain or accidentally breathing on his eyepiece.

RIFLESCOPES
The Elite 3200 offers multi-coated optics for generous light transmission and crisp image quality. To prevent light distortion from
moisture, our exclusive, patented Rainguard lens coating reduces large drops of water into near-microscopic specks. Scattering
far less light, their significantly smaller size results in dramatically increased light transmission and a remarkably clearer image
in wet weather (including condensation from your own breath). Like the Elite 4200‚ the Elite 3200 riflescopes also feature ultrastrong,
one-piece hammer-forged aluminum and titanium alloy tubes which are 30% stronger than standard aluminum scopes.
They are also recoil-tested to 1000 rounds of a .375 H&H Magnum. With 1/4 M.O.A. fingertip, audible/resettable windage and
elevation adjustments, the 3200 offers everything the most avid and discriminating hunter requires.

ELITE WITH FIREFLY GLOWING RETICLE
LEGEND

When you see a trophy your eyes light up. Now you’ll have the scope to match. Developed by Bushnell
engineers especially for the lowest light hunting situations, our new FireFly reticle illuminates the cross
hairs after only a quick 1-2 minute charge with a flashlight. Unlike battery-powered reticles – which
often fail at the absolute worst times – the FireFly reticle will glow green and you will see your crosshairs
against the animal. Look for the exciting new FireFly reticle on select models of our Elite 4200 and
3200 riflescopes. It’s the pinnacle of reticle innovation.

It’s durable, it’s dependable, and, plainly said, you won’t find a more rugged, highperformance scope that offers more features and such a large field-of-view at a
comparable price. This is the new Legend riflescope, built to endure the rigors of
hunting’s roughest conditions. The outstanding fully multi-coated optics provide an
impressive 91% light transmission, giving you a scope that’s not only tough, but packs
the performance you’d expect. With 100% waterproof, fogproof and shockproof
construction, it can withstand those long, often treacherous, hikes through wild terrain and
still provide you with a clear, bright image. Rounding out the Legend’s performance
features are a 3 1/2" eye relief, fast-focus eyepiece, 18'- to 36'-wide field-of-view for
instant target acquisition and the confidence of knowing your scope won’t fail at a key
moment. You have to like that.

Engineered with Amber-Bright optics which quickly help you distinguish between a brown tree and an
equally brown critter, the Trophy riflescopes have long been heralded by hunters as the ideal scope for
the autumn deer woods. For those willing to admit their addiction to hunting goes far deeper than an
opening day drive, you’ll appreciate the multi-coated optics for increased brightness in low light conditions.
Fast-focus eyepiece and a wide-angle field-of-view ensure instant target acquisition, and 1/4 M.O.A. fingertip,
audible/resettable adjustments make windage and elevation tuning quick and easy. With 100% fogproof,
waterproof and shockproof construction, they’re designed to excel during the day’s most important times.

TERMINOLOGY
Exit
Pupil
A riflescope indicates a bullet’s point of impact and makes distant targets and surrounding objects appear
closer. A riflescope is recommended for safer, more accurate shooting in the field and on the range.
Ocular Lens
Coated Optics
Parallax
Coatings on lens surfaces reduce light loss and glare due to
reflection for a brighter, higher-contrast image with reduced
eyestrain. Bushnell riflescopes are coated with a microscopic
film of magnesium fluoride. More coatings lead to better
light transmission.
A condition that occurs when the image of the target is not
focused precisely on the reticle plane. Parallax is visible as an
apparent movement between the reticle and the target when
the shooter moves their head or, in extreme cases, as an
out-of-focus image. Bushnell center fire riflescopes under 11x
are factory-set parallax-free at 100 yards; rim fire and shotgun
scopes at 50 yards. Scopes of 11x or more have an adjustable
objective to adjust for parallax.
Types of Coating
Coated – A single layer on at least one lens surface.
Fully Coated – A single layer on all air-to-glass surfaces.
Multi-Coated – Multiple layers on at least one lens surface.
Fully Multi-Coated – Multiple layers on all air-to-glass surfaces.
Exit Pupil
The size of the column of light that leaves the eyepiece of a
scope. The larger the exit pupil, the brighter the image.
To determine the size, divide the objective lens diameter by
the power (a 4x32 model has an exit pupil of 8mm).
Eye Relief
The distance a scope can be held away from the eye and still
present the full field-of-view. Bushnell riflescopes provide an
extra margin of comfort and recoil safety with extended eye
relief and soft neoprene eyepiece guards.
Field-of-View (F.O.V.)
The side-to-side measurement of the circular viewing field or
subject area. It is defined by the width in feet or meters of the
area visible at 100 yards or meters. A wide field-of-view makes
it easier to spot game and track moving targets. Generally, the
higher the magnification, the narrower the field-of-view.
Precision Adjustments
The windage and elevation adjustments affect accuracy.
Windage is the horizontal (left-to-right) adjustment, usually
the side turret of the scope. Elevation is
the vertical (up-and-down) adjustment,
usually the top turret of the scope.
Bushnell scopes feature 1/4 M.O.A.
(1/4" at 100 yards) or finer windage and
elevation adjustments with audible
clicks for greater precision.
Objective Lens Size
The second number in the formula (4x32) is the diameter of
the objective or front lens in millimeters. The larger the objective lens, the more light that enters the scope, and the
brighter the image.
Ocular Lens
The lens closest to your eye.

How to Choose
A quality riflescope is the key to a successful day at the
range or in the field. Riflescopes bring distant targets and
surrounding objects up close and personal allowing safer,
more accurate shooting. They gather and utilize available
light making it possible to shoot in lower light conditions and
allowing the hunter to hunt from dawn to dusk.
Pairing just the right riflescope with your gun and ammunition
will help you get the most out of each and every shot.
Selecting the correct scope to fit your needs involves a
number of considerations from mechanics and construction
to image quality and magnification. Keep in mind when and
where you shoot most often and choose a riflescope with
features that best fit the requirements of your particular sport.
Magnification
Choose a riflescope with the magnification
or power that is appropriate for your
particular application.
Low Power – (example: 1.5–6x32,
2–7x32) These riflescopes are ideal at
close range and for shooting moving
targets. They provide the most effective
light management and produce a brighter
sight picture and wider field-of-view –
even in low-light conditions and thick
brush.
Low
Medium
Medium Power – (example: 3–9x40,
RAINGUARD
Bushnell’s permanent, patented,
hydrophobic (water-repellant) lens
coating prevents fogging by causing
condensation from rain, sleet, snow or
even your own breath to bead up into
much smaller droplets than on standard
coatings. Smaller droplets scatter less
light which results in a clearer, brighter
view. Now the hunter won’t miss the shot of a lifetime
because of rain or accidentally breathing on his eyepiece.
Mechanics
Resolution
The inner workings of a scope have a direct affect on shooting
accuracy. As adjustments are made during sight-in, the cam
tube, which holds the reticle and lenses in place, moves
inside the scope. To stay on target and produce a quality
image, this tube must be strong enough to absorb the impact
of heavy recoil during shooting and remain in place.
When selecting your riflescope look for precision (positive)
adjustments, point-of-impact consistency, reticle strength
and waterproof, fogproof and shockproof durability. You’ll also
want to consider weight, bulk and ergonomics, which are
especially important during long days in the field.
Resolution, or definition, is the ability of a scope to distinguish
fine detail and retain clarity.
Image Quality
Magnification (Power)
Riflescopes are often referred
to by two numbers separated
by an “x”. For example: 4x32.
The first number is the power
4x
12x
or magnification of the scope.
With a “4x”, the object being viewed appears to be four
times closer than when seen with the unaided eye.
Power Ring
(zoom models only)
Rugged Body Construction
Bushnell riflescopes use a high-durability aluminum alloy.
They are also anodize-finished and are sealed to protect the
inside from the elements. Each riflescope is rustproof,
virtually scratch-proof and a beautiful complement to the
most expensive firearm.
RIFLESCOPES
RIFLESCOPE
Eyepiece
For optimum image quality, it is important that the optical
system of a riflescope deliver as much light as possible to the
eye of the shooter. The lighter or brighter the image, the
sharper the resolution and the clearer the shot. The quality of
the glass, lens design and optical coatings all contribute
to a riflescope’s ability to manage light effectively. When
selecting your scope, consider magnification, objective lens
size, exit pupil, resolution, field-of-view and eye relief.
2.5–10x50) Select these riflescopes for
hunting big game at medium range.
High Power – (example: 6–18x40,
6–24x40) These riflescopes are best for
target shooting, when the target is
motionless and for varmints and other
small game.
